Check Vehicle Fit

K&N powersports chrome canister oil filters contain a modern synthetic filter media, designed for ultimate flow with less pressure drop, yet engineered for outstanding filtration. K&N powersports 'spin-on' oil filters feature a heavy-duty, chrome-plated metal can. Most of these have a 17 mm nut affixed onto the end that allows for easy installation and removal. The 17 mm nut is crossed-drilled so racers can safety wire the filter to their bike.

Product Features:
  • O/E replacement oil filters for most cars, trucks, SUV's, motorcycles, & ATV's
  • 17 mm exposed nut designed for easy oil filter removal
  • Heavy-duty, chrome-plated canister handles extreme conditions
  • Resin-impregnated filter media traps 99% of harmful contaminants
  • Anti-drainback valve (where applicable) eliminates dry starts, prevents oil from draining back into crankcase during engine shutdown

Filter is plastic wrapped, this helps install without it getting dirty. Chrome is real nice and shiny. In general the HD filter is a PITA to remove and the K&N solves that w/ a bolt head at the top of the filter. R&R wil be simple. Glad that Advance is carrying this now.

A little too expensive

Easy to get on and off, except the nut on the end rounds easily and the chrome rusts quick...real quick.
Costing 50% more than OEM and others I can't see using...Read complete review

Comments about K&N Oil Filter:

K&N quality is hard to beat, be careful not to over tighten the filter because the nut on the can strip easily when trying to change at the next oil change, Yes been there:(
